At the beginning of the series, Pike Logan is serving in the Taskforce, an ultra-secretive dark ops corps of elite men drawn from the various branches of American intelligence. When it comes to talented officers, there is none better than Pike Logan, the best operative in the Taskforce.
Nonetheless, while he is a man of unrivalled instincts and talents, he is affected by personal tragedy just as much, if not more than the regular intelligence officer. The first novel in the series, One Rough Man sees Pike Logan go through a personal tragedy that permanently changes his perspectives on the world he lives in. He now knows that while not many people want to believe it, the real threat to world peace and security is not terrorist groups, rogue governments, or nations, but rather an individual person with extremist ideology that gets their hands on a dangerous weapon.
With an attack imminent, Logan now has to dig through a mound of paper full of intercepted chatter that could implicate and lead to the apprehension of two men with such extremist ideologies. Given the scale of the devastation that would likely result if the extremists’ plan were to succeed, there is no one better equipped to stop them than Pike Logan.
